facilethings not showing image with note

Recommended Posts

Hey,

I am trying to set up evernote with facilethings and am having a bit of a problem with images within notes not showing up in my facilethings inbox (or wherever the note is). It just has a link to the image.pdf. It says login into evernote for images to appear, but i am!

Do the images need to be saved in EN as something other than .pdf?

Really appreciate any help here!

solved.

 

" Yes, PDFs can't be directly shown by the broswer, that's why it shows you a link to open it. Any other typical image formats can be directly shown: png, jpeg, etc. "

Can you let us know what you think of Faciletings? I had looked into it before, never signed up for it or tried it out. Actually, it is a note in Evernote from 2016 where I took some screenshots of it.

I would be curious to find out what an Evernote user thinks.

Honestly, it's pretty good. A little slow, but it helps get GTD right out of the box. Kind of awkward in a few ways, but overall very nice. The toggle for kanban and sequential tasks is cool, too.

 

The sync with En is great.

Did either of you checkout Zendone at any time.  I tried it a few years back and it worked well, just decided I would forgoe some of the GTD specificity it supplied for having everything in one place bumbling forward.

Only issues with facilethings are probably related to the gtd specificity ...(personally speaking...) kinda slows things down, but does help get the system sorted right out of the gate. It has a guided weekly review built in, too.

Yeah a lot of nice features in Zendone, pretty UI, and an EN interface.  Just not my cup of teas to work out of two places.

That's my feeling too.  Evernote is my one storage place.

Also, I don't want to be constrained by any packaged workflow.
So I review these alternate services and implement the best points into my personal workflow.
On the Mac platform, I implement automation with scripting.  It works, even if not as pretty as the dedicated apps.

For the users of FacileThings and Zendone; are there any specific features delivered by the apps that you think are important.
The workflow diagram from Zendone gives a good overview of the GTD workflow.  For myself, I implemented many addition details in the Reference/Archive section..

Zendone looks really nice. Thanks for bringing it up, I had not checked it before.

I now have a nice balance between Evernote and Todoist for my personal management system and it works. I do like to check out new/other products that can improve things for sure. 

You said "GTD specificity"...was it too rigid?

Too rigid for me.  I'm more of a combo TSW and reminders type.  I don't care much about context per se, seems the more I refine things the more time I spend unraveling them.  TSW for non-deadline tasks and reminders for deadline tasks, work/play - home/away, doesn't matter.  Note that TSW tasks become reminder tasks if they stick around for toooooo long, dates supersede all else. 

That being said, easier for me to have everything in one place with Shift-Alt-T for TSW (! tags are at the top) and a group of saved searches for reminders.  Plus a tag:!* search when working the TSW tasks.  A few clicks and I have an excellent sense of what is most important.  If the focused search lists get too long I am doing something wrong.  Not everyone's cup of tea, but works for me.  ;)
